Lamborghini Gallardo Recall Reaches US
A total of 1,491 Gallardo Coupes and Spyders belonging to the 2004-2006 model years are being called back, with the problem being linked to the steering system. "In certain driving conditions, the high-pressure steering pipes near the steering assistance hydraulic system pump might leak," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tells us.
And despite the fact that the leak is at the front of the car and the engine is in the middle, "Leaking fluid, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire."
Lamborghini said it came across this issue during an internal testing session and that it can appear during really hard driving conditions. However, the carmaker added that it is not aware of any fires or accidents related to this.
The recall campaign has already debuted, with Lamborghini dealers replacing the power steering systems of the affected units. You can contact the carmker at (866) 681-6276.
